THIS SHOULD BE IN EVERYONE'S COOKBOOK. This colourful dip is usually "inhaled" at any party I have been to. In a pinch, when avocados are outrageously priced, I have either purchased frozen guacamole or left out that layer all together. It is still great. It is also nice to use a mixture of cheddar and jack cheese on top. I normally serve with a mixture of "blue", white and yellow tortilla chips. Great recipe!

This is the same recipe I've been making for many years. Every time I make it it gets devoured instantly. Absolutly the best. The only thing I do differently is to put the shredded cheese on right after the sour cream layer. Then I layer on the tomatoes, olives, and onions. I think it's prettier this way.

I used refried beans instead of "bean dip" and it came out great. This is a fabulous recipe. My friends loved it.

Made this yesterday for my mother-in-law's birthday and it was a hit! I did make two changes though, instead of green onions, I used regular white onions and used one can of spicy bean dip to give it a little kick. Will definitely make this again!

I made this for a graduation party and it was a big hit! I doubled the recipe and served it in a large foil pan using packaged guacamole. Will be making this again!

This was good and easy to make. I don't eat avocados so I used lettuce instead. I also don't care for raw onions so I just didn't add them. I followed the rest of the recipe as written and everyone enjoyed this.

Simple and quick. I doubled the recipe for a potluck last night and put it in a 9 x 13 glass pan. I bought guacamole at the local Mexican food store, because it's so good. I layered it bean dip, guacamole, sour cream mixture, cheese, tomatoes, green onion, and added chilies, and cut down taco seasoning to 3/4 of a package. It took me less than 15 minutes to make and was a huge hit, gone to the last scoop.

Really good!! This is going in my regular party food rotation. I veganized this, and it came out exactly as I remembered from my childhood. Substitutions were Vegenaise, Tofutti nondairy sour cream, and Daiya nondairy cheddar cheese shreds, which all worked perfectly. All other ingredients are naturally vegan and needed no modification. I used vacuum-packed guacamole to save some time. I hope I will have the chance to make this dip many more times! Not many people would turn their nose up at this!
